Details

Continental's Grand Prixs are some of the most popular road clinchers in the world. They're prefect for all types of cycling, from casual riding to serious racing. The Grand Prixs are known for extremely long wear and puncture resistance afforded by 3 separate casing plies and their Black Chili compound. Plus, the folding bead reduces weight. Train on it, race on it, this is THE tire.

Continental's Black Chili rubber compound significantly improves wear, traction and rolling resistance through the use of carbon nanotechnology and microscopic carbon particles in the rubber. These mold better to the ground and have more points of contact, which gives the tire more grip. And, because the compound matrix is formed of more particles, which are connected more tightly with each other, the tire lasts longer. Plus, the smaller particles are more flexible, too, which improves rolling resistance.
